Section 188.8.131.52 says:
If only N (S,G,rpt) Prune entries fit into a maximum-sized Join/Prune message, but the router has more than N (S,G,rpt) Prunes to add, then the router MUST choose to include the first N (numerically smallest in network byte order) IP addresses.
Only N (S,G,rpt) Prune entries are transmitted in the biggest Join/Prune message, what about the remaining (S,G,rpt) entries? Are they ignored? Is a second message generated? This should be made clear.
